It’s an ambicious project, but it seems that E.O. Wilson wish during last TED:

(…) Imagine an electronic webpage for each species of organism on Earth available everywhere (…)

might just as well be on our way:

Encyclopedia of Life

Encyclopedia of Life, a web-based compendium of data from scientists and amateurs on every aspect of the biosphere, or as they put it on their fresh website:

Comprehensive, collaborative, ever-growing, and personalized, the Encyclopedia of Life is an ecosystem of websites that makes all key information about life on Earth accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world. Our goal is to create a constantly evolving encyclopedia that lives on the Internet, with contributions from scientists and amateurs alike. To transform the science of biology, and inspire a new generation of scientists, by aggregating all known data about every living species. And ultimately, to increase our collective understanding of life on Earth, and safeguard the richest possible spectrum of biodiversity.

just check their demopages for now, but they look already really amazing to me:

É um projecto ambicioso, mas parece que o desejo que E.O. Wilson expressou durante a última TED:

(…) Imaginem uma página web para cada espécie de organismo que exista na Terra em qualquer lugar (…)

pode estar a um passo de se tornar realidade:

Enciclopédia da Vida

Enciclopédia da Vida, um compêndia web-based de informações cientificas e amadoras sobre todos os aspectos da biosfera, ou como os próprios autores a descrevem no website recém lançado:

por agora podemos apenas ver algumas páginas de exemplo, mas para mim, parecem-me já suficientemente fantásticas para ficarmos todos de olho neste projecto:
